autumn loves Skype. It's a free program that lets you make free calls to anyone, anywhere in the world, who has Skype.
We Skype with nanny and granddad down in Clearwater. We skyped with an old friend from New Zealand. We skyped with Uncle Simon and Aunt Christina (side note, the words uncle Simon made Autumn giggle because uncle Simon makes her laugh hysterically.)
Anyway, as soon as we call someone on Skype, Autumn breathlessly watched the computer waiting for the faces and voices to appear and talk to her. To her, the computer is a phone as well.
If you have a video camera attached to your computer, then sign up for Skype (it's free). Look for Matt Hames in Buffalo and lets talk for real.
